Over my time in Taekwondo, I have grown in several ways. One is physically. Over 9 years, of course I’m going to grow, but Taekwondo has made me much more athletic than I would have been otherwise. I have also become much more mature and in my view of Taekwondo as well as in school and social relations. Taekwondo has also become more important as a part of my life rather than as an extra activity. This has caused me to take other things, like school, as seriously as I take Taekwondo. I don’t know where I’d be now without Taekwondo.
